Adam Ant Live at the Garage - 2 April 2011 - Video Exclusive
Adam Ant played a live forty minute solo set at the Relentless Garage, London as part of the We Love Japan fundraiser last night.
Wearing a black military jacket and skinny black jeans, Adam headlined the charity showcase, which was quickly organised to raise money for the Japan Society Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund - almost exactly a year on from Adam's controversial solo appearance at Shore Leave. There was a measured improvement to the Ant solo show a year on, but it was evident that the set lacked the focus and sophistication one would expect for an upcoming tour - something we hope a backing band will bring.
This was a second charity gig of the week, with Adam also making a brief appearance at the Get Tested! Hepatitis C Trust benefit at the Jazz Cafe on Thursday 31 March, at which he performed Young Parisians and Get it On with show organiser and fellow 80s legend Boy George.
Adam also performed a private show on Friday 1st April at Woody's Tattoo Studio in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.
Adam's full set list for Saturday 2 April 2011: Young Parisians, Get it On, Cartrouble, Honky Tonk Woman, Cleopatra, Never Trust a Man (with Egg on His Face), Cast Iron Arm, Ants Invasion, Peggy Sue, No Fun, Wild Thing, Prince Charming and Physical.
